For quite some time now, people have been coming a series of rumours suggesting that Apple would release an iPhone 8 with different materials. In this case, namely, ceramic. This significant change came on the occasion of the celebration of the 10th anniversary of the iPhone. He is expected that iPhone 8 make its debut in the autumn of the year 2017.
But not only has he been rumored on ceramic iPhone 8. Other options such as the liquid-metal, stainless steel and glass have been taken into account. Brian Roemmele, lover of technology and self-proclaimed as "Alchemist and metaphysical" published on Quora an interesting article about the possible materials that would be made the iPhone 8.
In his article, iPhone 8 rumor said that ceramics is a fabulous material to dissipate heat, and also allows to transfer signals from LTE, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity with ease. Of course, he also added that ceramics is one of the most resistant and durable materials today. But... would be very different texture to the touch? However there are many analysts who say that the transition to the "ceramic" would be a really complicated process for Apple with just one year of margin. Although not impossible.
Finally, it is interesting to add that Apple could go this 'transition' to a new material (if the company is interested in diversifying its materials of construction) launching different models as "Premium", "Special Edition", or "Plus". Obviously, if Apple chose to launch an iPhone 8 Plus ceramic , the device would be quite more expensive than current models, but that always depends on the direction and development of new technologies, which usually tend to clog up the prices.
